It's so poignant to see how Diane Polley permeates every frame of this film, despite the fact she's the only main player not able to be interviewed on her own life. It's heartbreaking to see how much her loss has deeply affected all those left behind to fill in the blanks for themselves, as best they can.
I loved Polley's angle on this, her framing device of the subjectivity of memory, and how we truly can never know a person, even one we are very, very close to.
Similarly, Polley's love for Michael Polley is so evident throughout, it made my heart hurt. I may have cried on more than one occasion.
